GN - OOO O Gundam (Type A.C.D)

 So today's post will be about the O Gundam.  Now, I just started watching OO Gundam so I have not encountered this gundam yet but I liked how it looked so I decided to pick him up!
 The first thing I noticed that this kit only has 2 stickers on it! Something I've rarely seen.

 I was having some trouble pushing this piece in, I think the polycapwould not go into the slot, but I eventually got it to fit!

 Here he is complete! Looking good I might add! I have no complaints about this kit. It's kinda hard to pose it in the famous RX-78 pose, but we'll get to that later :)

 Very cool Kit! I loved it. Very low maintenance and not much panel lining to do!

HG G30 RX-78 - Darth_Andrea


I went ahead and assembled the HG G30 RX-78, no stickers or decals, not sanded or painted, paint coming next week. Just a test assembly to make sure I had everything and everything fit.

You can see where I used the Grey Gundam Panel Liner Marker on the head face and thighs. That was just a test to see the color and how they work. (Never used them before) And I think once I paint I'll use black paint to do the panel lining. I don't like the Grey and I want hard lines on it, and the black will show up better. May even use enamel for the lining so when I clear (gloss) top coat it the panel lines will pop.

Also on a related note, we got a announcement today of the next mobile suit in the Beginning line. A Variant of the Beginning G.

HG 1/144 Beginning J Gundam (Release Date: Dec 2011, Price: 1600 yen)

new shipment

Got these in the mail today, I can't wait to try them out!!!

For those who don't know what to do with these.

If you take black enamel and thin it out. You can get those small pesky thin panel lines!

GN - OOOO OO Gundam

Wow, lots of  "Os" in this title.  This is the 1/144 scale HG version of the OO Gundam

The second Mobile Suit for Setsuna.

This was a fun kit to make but I had some issues with it.

 This is another first for me, the first steps are on the information page. I rarely see that.

 Here comes the first problem I came into. These two clear parts obviously fit into the sides of the head, but I could not fit them in there, they are not on my kit now.

 And this one might be a personal problem, but the stickers for the "v" fins did not stick on at all so for the final product I removed them.

So overall, This is a good and sturdy kit. If you like OO, you'll obviously like this kit.

More updates to come soon!

SD MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam

So I decided to Build Zeta Gundam

First thing I notice is Blue instructions! Wow, never seen that before!!

also gray PC parts and this one is a first at least for me, The eyes, face, and helmet is molded as one piece.

So, I decide maybe to try panel line with the piece still in the sprues.

It worked for awhile but eh.. I'll just put it together before I panel line.

My big neckbeard ham hands smudges the lines.

Very cute kit and I like it :)
